DeVito takes lemons and makes limoncello

Danny DeVito is taking an embarrassing moment on ABC’s "The View" and turning it into his own brand of limoncello, a lemon-flavored liqueur.

The 62-year-old actor-director made a loopy appearance on the daytime talk show last November, saying he’d had a late night out with George Clooney.

"I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me," DeVito said.

DeVito — who was promoting his new comedy, "Deck the Halls" — slurred his speech and used some bad language when joking about President Bush, among other gaffes, during his appearance on "The View."

When Clooney was later asked how much was consumed, he replied: "A lot. … I got to the point where I was dumping the shots into, ah, you know, a plant next to me and, um, I don’t think … I don’t think Danny saw me do that."
